WKND-R is a boutique lifestyle and property management service that helps create the weekend experience you envisioned when you invested in your second home.

Instead of going over the laundry list of looming tasks on your Friday drive up from the city—you can look forward to a stocked fridge, fresh flowers, and a welcoming home that has been maintained for a relaxing weekend. From pantry and design services to weekly check-ins, maintenance and short term rental management, WKND-R will handle the logistics of upstate home ownership so you can maximize your precious time doing the things you want to do.

An initial consultation will help determine each client's specific needs and a tailored service plan will be created just for you.

WKND-R gave us our weekend back and I am so grateful. I opened my door to fresh flowers on the table and eggs from our coup in the refrigerator rather than the typical uncertainty. Maggie is so reliable and kind. She even told us about an event that we had not heard about and recommended a sitter for our 5-year-old so we could grab dinner before we headed out. Our entire family is looking forward to summer weekends, can’t wait! Thanks again, WKND-R.

FAQ's

 
 

Do I need to use your specific maintenance services? I like my plow company.

Absolutely not! What we will do is make sure your plow company always shows up when they are supposed to and check that they are doing a great job. We maintain relationships with our approved service providers, but are happy to work with your preferred maintenance services.

How do I pay for my pantry items?

We have your credit card on file and provide detailed receipts of all purchase each week. Or we can set up a house account with some of our vendors.

What areas do you service?

WKND-R offers service in Columbia County and parts of Dutchess County. Please call to see if your home falls in our coverage area.

I am interested in your DEsign SERVICES... what's the next step...?

Fantastic! We would love to meet you for a consultation.

Is there a contract?

Yes. A mutually agreed upon contract will outline services and fees, responsibilities, duration, termination clause and liability.

How do you customize your pantry services for my specific tastes and needs?

We meet with our clients for an hour consultation and get to know their home and preferences. WKND-R creates a custom order for your specific wants and needs and can quickly make adjustments if those needs change.

I am thinking about setting up my home as a short term rental while we are away for a month. Does this service cost more?

Yes, setting up your home as a rental requires an additional one-time flat fee. If you choose to use WKND-R to fully manage your rental, our fee is a percentage of each booking.

What do your concierge services include?

These services are tailored to the needs of the client and will be discussed during the initial consultation. From vetting and booking babysitters to arranging spa services to prepping for dinner parties… basically anything that helps you enjoy your precious time upstate.

ABOUT US

 
 

 

Maggie Goudsmit moved with her family from Williamsburg Brooklyn to Germantown, NY in 2011. She began her career as a fashion photographer and then a digital photo retoucher for editorial and advertising clients. After living Upstate for several years she kept hearing from friends with weekend homes how dissatisfied they were with their weekend experience—instead of swimming in a secret swimming hole or skiing they were waiting in line at the grocery store and calling the house cleaner who never showed up. WKND-R was born to restore the weekend experience back to being carefree. With Maggie's knowledge of where to find the perfect bottle of wine and the best local provisions, and her valuable network of services—she is able to tailor a personal and incredibly organized package for her select group of clients.
